Virtualbox 5.0

I like it when stuff just “works”.

I’ve been using Virtual Box 4 for a long time now, and since my needs are relatively simple (ie, run a VM!) then I’ve not had any great cause to move to version 5.  But today I had a spare few minutes and thought “Well, its probably time”.

So the steps I followed were:

  • download
  • run the installer
  • start version 5

And .. well, all my stuff  (aka all my existing VM’s) worked just fine.  In fact, the only “error” I got was when I tried to start up too many of them at once and VirtualBox helpfully told me that I was either kidding myself or needed a better laptop.

This is how upgrades should be.  Simple and pain free.  Love it.
